Description

Kathleen Corley continues her examination of women's roles at the beginnings of Christianity with this groundbreaking new study of women's funerary rituals and lament customs in the ancient Roman world. She finds in these rituals important connections with Gospel accounts of women's visits to the tomb of Jesus and of his resurrection "on the third day." Examining texts, catacomb art, and inscriptions, she articulates a new and exciting role for women mourners at the heart of Christian origins.

"One of the most important works in recent years to trace the active role of women in the formation of Christian tradition. Corley's thesis is bold and challenging and touches upon central aspects of the study of Christian origins, including the development of the Passion Narratives and empty tomb stories. Drawing upon cross-cultural studies, the volume includes meticulous research on women's lament traditions, women's roles in the cult of the dead, and participation in funerary banquets."
